I was born August 31, 1999, at The Coulston Foundation laboratory in Alamogordo, NM to my mother Katrina and my father Ridge. My records are incomplete, so Save the Chimps does not know if I spent any time with my mother. By 2001, however, I was living in the laboratory nursery with other chimps my age. Fortunately, I was never used as a biomedical research subject.
Save the Chimps rescued me in 2002 when The Coulston Foundation was o the verge of bankruptcy. I became a member of Lou’s family and was reunited with my mother Katrina. Now a strapping adult male, I am high-ranking male, but I have yet to become the alpha male of my group. I am trying, but I still need to work on my leadership skills. When I am not out patrolling my island with my best friend Chaka.
